Well, it's definitely false. Anytime I get a forward like that, I usually go to snopes.com and check it out. More often than not - They're false.

Sorry Trinity. No Neiman-Marcus cookies for you.
I didn't even have to snopes that one...it was obviously fake.

What happens when you charge something to your card? You get a receipt to sign. Only a fool could miss seeing "$285.00"
